There’s something about the aroma of the Middle Eastern spices that are sizzling over hot charcoals and makes lamb kofta kebab a common favourite of the crowd! This lamb kofta kebab recipe lets you create the perfect dish that is best with Middle Eastern carrots, cabbage and mint salad, warm pita bread or hot rice.

Kofta comes from the Persian word kufteh which means mashed. Before the use of food processors, meats are literally mashed with a large mortar and pestle and added on different dishes.

As such, Lamb kofta is a classic dish made of oval-shaped or rounded patties of seasoned ground lamb that is mixed with tahini sauce and typically served inside a warm pita. It’s also equally good with minced chicken version and yoghurt.

Cooking 

  1. Chop the garlic, onion, ginger and coriander together. Start to soak the skewers in the water.

  1. Divide the mixture for about six to eight pieces. Use plastic safety gloves and shape the meat into balls. Press it gently while putting it on the skewers.
  1. Grill your lamb kofta kebabs for 10 minutes until the meat is all cooked. Check both sides for better cooking.
  1. Serve this with salad, flatbread and add up yoghurt or mint dressing depending on your needs.
